Your task this week is to create a spreadsheet that would help a youger child to learn their times tables. Typically, a child would start to learn their tables in year 2 or 3, so that gives you an idea of your audience.
Here are some requirements - start at the top and work down. Only do the ones that you are comfortable with, and stop and submit your task when you feel that you can go no further.
the spreadsheet should show one times table with all of the multiples from 0 - 12, e.g. 0 x 2, 1 x 2, 2 x 2, 3 x 2, 4 x 2, etc.
the user should be able to choose which times table they want to see by changing a value in a single cell.
your spreadsheet should be clear and simple to use, e.g.:
it could be colour-coded so that the user can easily see which numbers should be changed and which shouldn't
all cells, apart from those that need to be changed, could be protected
the spreadsheet should appeal to the target audience - but it's more important that it works properly!
You can also add any extra features that you think are appropriate. Don't forget that there is help on Excel in the Office section.
When you have created your times tables spreadsheet, don't forget to save and submit it!
This is how your spreadsheet will be marked:
